Ask + Thy Thrift Store Shall Provide

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Setting up for my show at Cannon Mine Coffee in Lafayette, CO, my art manager Sara Jane had the genius idea of making business card holders out of objects from the thrift store a few blocks away. Why put that shit on the counter when you could put it in a jar with a moose on it? That’s the question we all have to ask ourselves, at some point in our lives.

I have returned to visit my art at Cannon Mine and sip a nice bev several times since the beginning of March – I like this place. I’ve met a couple cool artists there (more info on that later) and I hope our paths cross again soon.

The open mikes there are boppin’. Check these pics of my art in action:

1,000 thanks to my art manager Sara Jane Petesh who set this show in motion and fellow cohort Josh Ketolas for project funding. He also just made me a really strong Kaluha and coffee. Awesome
